Rainbow babies are babies born following a miscarriage.
Ovulation Strips are used to detect an increase in LH levels that suggest ovulation will occur soon. These can become very expensive and I recommend buying them in bulk via Amazon or another supplier Wondo is a fairly popular brand.
HcG Strips are pregnancy tests. Given how often most women will test I suggest using the cheap version purchase in bulk. Wondo or the dollar store brands are the ones I personally use. This allows you to obsess to your hearts delight as well as to test out your trigger.
Trigger shop is a shot given to induce ovulation.
Testing out the trigger. A trigger shot is a rush of HcG and for this reason you will test positive on a pregnancy test. Many women will test the trigger out meaning they will take a pregnancy test each day to make it easier to tell the difference between an actual positive pregnancy test and trigger shot.
